Frozen Hot Chocolate

Now, I know that this is not a "healthy treat". However, if you are going to splurge once in a while, might as well get filled up so that you don't need to snack on anything else!
  • 3 oz. chocolate pieces ( I like Trader Joe's Belgium Dark Chocolate)
  • 1 Tablespoon hot chocolate mix  
  • 1 Tablespoons sugar or 1 packet Truvia
  • 1 1/2 cups milk, used in two parts (skim or almond, if you don't want to go too overboard!)
  • 3 cups ice
  • 1 packet ThinStick™
  • Whipped cream (optional)
Break the chocolate pieces into smaller chunks and put in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted. Once melted, add the hot chocolate mix and sugar. Stir until combined. Slowly add ½ cup of milk until smooth. Cool to room temperature.

In a blender, place the remaining cup of milk, the room-temperature chocolate mixture, ThinStick™ and the ice. Blend on high speed until smooth. Pour into a large glass and top with whipped cream (optional).
